Open Position

Post-Doctoral Researcher in Meteorology (m/f), CRP-GL, Luxembourg

The Centre de Recherche Public - Gabriel Lippmann, a fast growing public
establishment for applied scientific research and technology transfer in
Luxembourg, has an opening on a fixed-term contract basis in its department
"Environment and Agro-Biotechnologies" (EVA) for a post-doctoral researcher
in meteorology (m/f).

Reference (please quote):

Duties and responsibilities:
We offer the position of a postdoctoral researcher to work on a fixed-term
contract (2 years) in the international project CLIMPACT (“Assessment of
regional climate change impacts on the water cycle in Luxembourg and
neighbouring regions”) funded by the CORE program of the Luxembourg
National Research Fund (FNR).
The project covers two main topics: 1) a comprehensive regional climate
change assessment with a focus on hydrometeorology based on existing
datasets including bias-corrections and uncertainty assessments; 2) high
resolution regional climate change projections for Luxembourg and the
surrounding regions (Southern Belgium, Western Germany, Eastern France)
down to resolutions of 1 km to better capture momentum, energy and mass
transfers as associated to small-scale surface heterogeneities in the
framework of a small multi-model ensemble.
Tasks include e.g. the handling of climate change impact analyses based on
large datasets of existing projects, the experiment design, setup and
conduction of specific high resolution RCM runs, the derivation of climate
change diagnostics and the analyses of boundary layer processes to assess
changes in the surface-atmosphere coupling under climate change conditions.
Work is to be carried out mainly on our in-house HPC-system Linux cluster
and compute servers using Fortran and standard scientific programming

Candidates should hold a PhD in either meteorology, physics, mathematics,
geosciences or a related field.
A specialization and proven experience in regional atmospheric numerical
modelling, dynamical downscaling (ideally with the WRF/ARW model) and
proficiency in boundary-layer processes is an absolute necessity. Knowledge
of scientific computing and visualisation techniques as well as advanced
data analyses are expected.
Fluency in English (spoken and written) is a must, knowledge of French will
be considered as an advantage.

For applying, the candidates should provide the following documents:
- a letter of motivation
- a curriculum vitae

Candidates who are interested in the position should send their application
(with the above reference) by e-mail to recrutement at lippmann.lu or by mail
to: CRP - Gabriel Lippmann; Service du personnel; 41, rue du Brill; L-4422
BELVAUX; Luxembourg.
